Youth: choices and change: promoting healthy behaviors in adolescents
Abstract[From Introduction]: Youth: Choices and Change provides a variety of theoretical frameworks within which health professionals and others dedicated to improving the health of adolescents and youth may design mechanisms to stimulate the development of healthy lifestyle choices. By strengthening youths’ decision-making capacity and encouraging them to take advantage of enhanced social support systems within the community, the impetus for behavioral change receives both immediate and ongoing positive reinforcement.
